With the new update ‘‘Sons of Attila’’ finally released, upon exploring through the various new options been given to the players, there has been a new optional feature involving the change & customization of the free-flowing flags shown on naval vessels.
Within this new customizable option, I discovered a few flags that are present & selectable to use on your ships & boats whilst NOT being available under selection within the ‘World Flags’ section in the decals list, namely one being the Scottish Saltire.
The Scottish Saltire decal was temporarily available for a limited time during 2016’s ‘St Andrew’s Day’ event (Novemeber 30th) and has not been available to obtain since then, As it stands to my knowledge, Gaijin had specifically stated that the Scottish Saltire flag decal would not be considered a GE purchasable decal due to Scotland itself not being a ‘Sovereign nation’ for it belonging to the territory of the United Kingdom.
However, upon investigation into this matter, the new naval vessel flag option allows you to purchase the saltire for 500 Golden Eagles, (pretty much alike the world flags in the decals) alongside other questionable flags such as Wales, England itself & also Northern Ireland.
So why not allow for these flags to finally be obtainable as official world flag decals for the players who want to express their heritage?
There is even an opportunity to allow the saltire to return again for a limited time during ‘St Andrew’s Day’ this year (2023) just over a month from now, would be so glad to get my own hands on it as I’ve waited years for a chance.
